Jacquie Helmer

Erica was absolutely amazing! Completely exceeded my expectations. From start to finish she was informative, supportive, and willing to do whatever was necessary to help me on my birthing day. She also provided my husband guidance so that he knew what to do (or not do). She even continues to provide support after the birth of my daughter by answering my questions about motherhood constantly. Look no further for a doula, Erica is your person.
